Developer Event Horizon recently debuted Sci-fantasy RPG, Dark Envoy with a story trailer.

Solo, or with a friend in a two-player co-op, players will travel the world using a Skyship as their base of operations. Dark Envoy is in development for PC, PS5, Xbox Series S/X, PS4, and Xbox One.
Game details as shared on Steam:
About Dark Envoy
Malakai and Kaela are children of war refugees, living the day-to-day life of adventurers as they seek ancient relics and forgotten places. Soon they too will have to learn how to survive in the chaos of war, as blood and tragedy will mark the beginning of their true journey.
Dark Envoy merges together a rich, non-linear story and tactical, party-based combat with dynamic gameplay flow and high-quality visuals and effects. Further, it blends modern concepts with classic genre tropes, creating a distinct and unique RPG gaming experience.
The main component of Dark Envoy is a story campaign that can be completed alone or in online co-op mode with another player. Grab a friend and travel the world, seeking out whatever dungeons, challenges, and riches may come your way. Enjoy the story and search for ancient relics and forgotten places together.
Jäan has exploded into total war as humans challenge the old balance and traditions of magic with their mana-based technology. Humans, mysterious beings with a far more mysterious past, are newer to this world but have risen under the banner of the self-proclaimed emperor to establish a place they can finally call home.
Up until now, the Old Races looked down at humans for their weak connection to magic and held them in check through their superior knowledge of the arcana. Now, Orcs and Elves have been pushed off their lands and must fight to protect the natural order of magic.
Recruit characters such as a Moon-Elf assassin, quirky engineer, ex-Imperial soldier, renowned Elven mercenary, and more.
Non-Linear RPG Narrative
Your choices are everything as they can reshape the conflict that has gripped the world of Jäan. Which faction will you align with? Will your legacy be one of peace and honour or stained by bloodshed and destruction?
Main/Side-Quests and Shape-Shifting Dungeons
Explore the world in your Skyship, hunting for ancient treasures through over 15 different biomes with various gameplay mechanics. A large pool of quests and events are waiting for you to discover them.
In addition to the main and side-quests, there are optional shape-shifting dungeons for players to explore. These are challenging areas where the layouts and enemy patrol routes shift each time you enter. These dungeons yield powerful rewards and players will have to think on their feet if they want to attain what these unique spaces offer.
Tactical, Party-Based Combat
Real-time combat (with slow or pause) rewards tactical thinking. Strategically manoeuvre your party, utilizing destructible cover and taking on enemies with a deep pool of visually stunning abilities.
